LookTel Recognizer allows those persons having visual impairments or blindness to identify cans, packages, ID or credit cards, DVDs, and similar items. Customers can store images of objects in a library or database, and then point the iPhone's camera at an object and the phone will recognize and describe the item instantly. A barcode scanner is included to provide additional labeling help.
LookTel Recognizer is powered by an evolution of NantWork's Internet of Thought™ data linking services in LookTel's "Money Reader", an app that has helped thousands of customers with visual impairments or blindness to instantly identify and count more than 20 paper currencies. Like MoneyReader, Recognizer uses state-of-the-art recognition technology.
Recognition happens instantly, in real-time, without having to hold the camera still to capture a photo, then wait for a result. Recognizer can be used at any location, anytime, as the app needs no internet connection.
Recognizer provides customers backup support through export of the Library items via EMail, enabling the restoration of a database from lost or replaced devices. Sharing items with other members of the community is made easy via this email export.
Please note that people with severe visual impairments or blindness may require sighted assistance to initially create the image library. The image library must be setup before LookTel Recognizer can be used to identify objects.
